hi, i have a 2006 impreza 2.0 r engine . i bought the car from the previous owner in may 2015. for 1 month the car worked well. as soon as you touch the gas pedal it will shoot off, acceleration great and top speed about 190 km. as soon as i changed the rim and tyres it died. it had 16's and i put 17's, but the manual said i can make that change. it started to flat spot bad and go dead. it will crawl up small hills gas pedal to board. on flat roads as well, flat spot, dead, no acceleration. then suddenly it will take off again with a spurt but will soon die down again. on the highway 3rd and 4th gears no problems. it will fly. but it never worked again as it did the first month.i have tried to reset the ecu, but it will work better just for about 2 days and then go back again to working horribly. i have been to 5 mechanics . they said the changing of the rims will not cause that, just coincidence. i have changed new fuel filter with regulator. also the fuel pump. we put a gauge to check the psi of the pump and it held up fine- no problems.serviced the air filter. i changed the knock sensor. i replaced the air flow sensor. i serviced the injectors and throttle body four times at different mechanics. i changed the timing belt and tension-er and pulleys - . i changed the engine and transmission oils. i changed the spark plugs. sometimes on the highway the 4th gear will take long to go in and when i try to kick down, it will not and the same gear will run. the 1st and second gear will sometimes go in with a hard buck.when i apply brakes to stop, while slowing down i can feel the hard buck from the engine or there abouts as the car comes to a stop.i scanned the car at 6 mechanics! some said many sensors are bad while some say no sensors are bad.the ignition is rattling now and it is burning excess gas. i have used premium gas, super gas, super gas with octane boost - all with same results. i went back to the dealer( company ) and they told me the scanner is showing that the timing kept retarding and they don't know why. one mechanic told me to change the computer. one said that this computer cannot be reprogrammed. another said it doesn't matter changing the computer all of the same computers wil give the same problems. one said it could be the harness. now i find that even at high speeds it is not performing as good a before. now when i step on the gas pedal to drive off from stop, there is a hesitation for about 3 seconds which many times nearly caused me to get into accidents when i try to move off with on coming cars approaching. i do not know what the hell to do again. i am frustrated and tired. do you know of anyone with this problem and they were able to fix it? do you know of this problem at all? i am really looking for some help. i will greatly appreciate it. thanks for your time again.

Hello, I have found a spot on Alfa 33 1.7 16v red with only 46000km on the clock. All original, the interior is like new and the paint is the original except of a front wing but no accidents. I am wondering is that an investment car in say 5-10 years? The price is very low. Read more

Wouldn't buy it with the mindset that it'll be an investment. At best it'll increase in value enough to cover the cost of the never ending repairs and maintenance an old Alfa (or a new one) would require. If you like it then buy it and enjoy depreciation free motoring if you keep it nice and assuming you don't overpay at the start.

This query is on my mothers behalf. She has a 1986 Toyota that she is reluctant to part with. Currently we are having troubles sourcing a replacement windscreen. Her current garage or mechanic had been trying to source one from India but this has taken the best part of three months now and she was recently told that the company he was using had gone out of business. Then recently the same person offered to buy the car. My mum was not impressed by his attitude and hence the reason I am contacting you.

Are you able to advise the best course of action and perhaps a trusted contact that me be able to assist with finding an appropriate windscreen.... Read more
